The L3Harris PatrolSim™ is the most realistic, cost-effective law enforcement driving simulator. It is easy to set up and provides drivers with a real-life representation of a patrol car that allows them to learn, practice, and train in the safety of the simulator.
Here are seven benefits a police simulator can provide compared to a patrol car for training.
Law enforcement driving simulators allow training to happen anywhere and at any time. Because they can be easily installed on-site or made fully mobile, training is made more accessible. This allows you to bring high-quality training opportunities to all officers, regardless of location.
You can’t teach someone how to drive through the rain or snow if it’s always sunny. A driving simulator supplements and enhances initial and scheduled driver training, and also allows law enforcement officers to learn how to drive on trains, on road conditions, and under various atmospheric conditions.
Retention is improved through continual training, performance assessments, and chances for education. Driving simulators do all of these things as they provide complete, consistent, and objective feedback. This allows drivers to gain the skills and confidence to drive safely.
Driving simulators are not just used for new employee training, but can also provide veteran officers with unique situations to test and improve their driving skills.
Departments that use an L3Harris driving simulator have significantly reduced preventable accidents. Additionally, accidents have reduced severity with less injury to the officers and the vehicle.
Training conditions can put a lot of stress and pressure on a vehicle, which leads to more maintenance and higher-cost repairs. A law enforcement driving simulator allows officers to push their vehicles to their limits without the constant fear of repair costs. Instead of using your fleet for training, you can keep it on the road and serve your community
The L3Harris PatrolSim™ tracks and records all information during every driving simulation, which makes performance assessments easy. Teachers and leaders can look at quantifiable data, including the small details.
A police car simulator is a much more fuel-efficient way to train officers on the job than a live driving test, as you won’t have to spend any money on gas.
The simulator is also a great way to teach drivers about fuel efficiency. It provides real-time feedback about the driver’s habits and provides the chance for direct feedback to improve fuel efficiency in fuel management training.
